EPISODE 15: God, Greed, & the Prosperity Gospel: An Interview with Costi Hinn

How do you feel about rescue missions? Costi Hinn joins us on the podcast to talk about the mission he’s on!

“I began to realize that what the bible says, what we teach, and how we live, are very different.”  – Costi Hinn

What drives people towards the prosperity gospel? It’s an unquenchable thirst for hope. We discuss in depth with Costi Hinn the appeal of prosperity gospel, the abuse it requires, and the real hope and healing that is found in Jesus Christ and a biblical gospel.  

“On a human level, we all need hope, we all need healing, we all need answers.” – Costi Hinn

“In your deepest, darkest pain and suffering, God is with you, He is near you, He is for you, and He loves you.” – Costi Hinn

“The prosperity gospel abuses vulnerable people. What these desperate vulnerable people need is a pastor who will love them, protect them, and give them real hope.”  – Costi Hinn
